The Institute of Philosophy submitted the application for the HR Excellence in Research Award to the European Commission on 31 March 2021. We have thus completed the initial phase of the HR Award process and entered the implementation phase. The GAP analysis and the Action Plan in Czech and English language version can be found in the relevant sections of the HR Excellence website.


During the self-assessment phase, questionnaire surveys, individual interviews and several employee discussions (in the form of focus groups) were carried out to collect input, opinions and suggestions for improvements to be later summarised in gap analysis. The aim of the institution's self-assessment was to gather a comprehensive opinion of employees on the workplace functioning and development opportunities. Conclusions were incorporated not only to the gap analysis, but subsequently also to general concept of the action plan. Detailed information on the progress achieved in the course of the self-assessment process is available in sections: Survey, Focus Groups, Boards, GAP analysis.
